CONNECTICUT CHILDREN’S INJURY PREVENTION CENTER, BLUMENTHAL, MURPHY, CTDOT LAUNCH CAMPAIGN TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT DANGERS OF KIDS IN HOT CARS

 
WHAT:
Connecticut Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy will join members of Connecticut Children’s Injury Prevention Center and Connecticut Department of Transportation to announce the launch of a public awareness campaign around the dangers of kids in hot cars.
 
Last year Connecticut saw one child death and a number of children who had to be rescued by police and/or bystanders.

 

WHEN:

Friday, June 5th at 10:00 a.m.

 

WHERE:

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center
550 Main Street in Hartford, CT

 

WHY:   

The statistics are staggering.  The body temperature of a child can increase three to five times faster than an adult.  Heatstroke continues to be the leading cause of non-crash related deaths for children 14 years old and younger. An average of 38 children have died in hot cars each year in the USA since 1998.  Last year a 15-month-old boy in Ridgefield died after having been left in a motor vehicle.

 

The Connecticut Department of Transportation is supporting this public awareness campaign, led by Connecticut Children’s Injury Prevention Center in collaboration with its partners at Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital and Safe Kids Connecticut.  Learn more at wheresbaby.org

  1. Review by Sarah M. Broderick for Rating: This little guy comes exactly how it is stated. I was kinda surprised how durable it felt, and how easy it was to use after I read the directions. As for it not being compatible for some…. I just downloaded real player and it works just fine. The video quality is decent, but I wasn’t expecting picture perfect, high quality details. The audio works well too, and you are able to understand what is being said. Overall I think I got more than what I was expecting, and I”m really happy with the product.

  2. All going swimmingly until the “select network” step. I get a prompt in the HP Setup Assistant box: “Device Not Connected — To configure the network settings of the selected device, please connect it temporarily via USB. The device can be disconnected from? the USB once the network settings are transferred.” Okay, but I am, in fact, connected via USB, so this is stumping me.

  3. Great job, Rob Mac. I know it was supposed to be funny but it’s also a great way to reinforce everything John’s been teaching (in reverse). Great “eye training” for me. It took me a while to find the specific entropy introduced in some of the subtler steps; for example, rounding out the smile curve. But eventually I caught them all.It does need a final “tude” step, though. Ha!

  5. My grandfather, Hal Wood Culpepper, a native of Nags Head, NC, built many dories like the ones pictured here in his backyard. He would even build the wooden trailers. Hal built many wooden boats 10′ – 28′ in length starting in the 30s and continuing until his death in April 1977.

  6. Já que Brasília é a ilha da fantasia, por que não mudar o nome para Brasilha?Assim fica rimando com Bastilha e quem sabe a gente não toma uma atitude? Afinal já se disse que “os que não aprendem com a história estão condenados a repetí-la”. Por mim, estou cheio de ser tratado como idiota e acho que está na hora de mostrarmosa esses delinquentes que paciência tem limites.

  7. Yesssss. Amped for this. Hopefully she also does letterman or Leno & Kimmel. I need them to stretch the promo for as long as they can. lol Hell, even throw her on the view or regis & kelly. Shit! Good Morning America. lol Can’t wait to see her performances she bout to SLAY. The #QUEEN is back bitches. TTU!!!!!

  8. Katuci,Akkor sem ha kiéhezteted és nem kap mást? :))) Szörnyűek ezek a pasik :))Trollanyu,Szerintem sem lehet megunni ;)) Nálunk sem a padlizsánnal van a baj, sokkal inkább azzal, hogy a zöldségek mellé nem mindig jár húsi is :))Mrita,Igen, egyszer meg kell velük kóstoltatni aztán rájönnek, hogy milyen finomat kaptak enni :))
